The New York Times releases a new audio app

LISTEN · · 2.7 minutes to read
  • The New York Times Audio app has been released to beta testers. Here’s a little look from Alex Rainert, the NYT’s Head of Audio Product & Design. Sara Fischer at Axios has access and posts a detailed look - it contains other audio features in addition to podcasts.

  • Fireside Chat is sending out personal “time limited” invitations - telling us we have a “unique voice that would benefit from being on the Fireside platform”. With “lots of interest from the podcast community”, “we have limited creator spots left”, says co-founder Falon Fatemi, urging us to get in touch at our “earliest convenience”. A look into a friendly podcast producer’s email inbox leads us to pontificate that the invitations might not be as unique nor “time limited” as we’d hoped; she’s been sending these emails since October.

Podcast News - with Blue Wire

WR1 with Cris Carter
In Blue Wire's limited series WR1 presented by WynnBet, legendary NFL wide receiver Cris Carter interviews legends of the WR position as well as the next generation of superstars to understand what makes this position so unique, as so many personalities and stories come from outside of the hash marks. Guests include Julian Edelman, Adam Thielen, Mike Evans, Calvin Johnson, and many more.
The San Francisco Experience
The latest guest on The San Francisco Experience is our Editor, James Cridland, talking about radio receivers in the shape of Frosties packets and the first daily podcast from a UK radio station. Hosted by Jim Herlihy, the show is from “America’s favourite city” (don’t tell Boston)
Bald Talk
In Bald Talk, bald comedians, Brian Huskey and Charlie Sanders, interview celebrities, actors, musicians, directors, and really anyone about being bald, both literally and figuratively. This week, they’re joined by Mark Sam Rosenthal and Katie Morrissey to talk about 'dating baldies’.
